2016/17 Kaisercraft Design Team Application

Hi fellow papercrafters!


I am super excited to have made the final round of the 2016/17 Kaisercraft Design Team. 

I have had the privilege of being on the team for the past two years and have loved creating with Kasiercraft Products and making so many new friends. 

How could I not try again this year!

We were sent a very generous amount of products to create ONE project that shows our unique creative style. 

I chose to do a card...I guess you will not be surprised at that lol!

It is a BIG card .....

....... which means more areas to play with! 

I have made a video that shows you my creative thought process, (how I selected my project) and then I reveal my card...so very exciting!

As you know, I always love to share, so I have made a second video that will show you how I made the card ....... that way, you get to play too! 

The video shows you clearly how to make the card foundation, so I thought I would tell you how I decorated it.


Card Front

  • Cut two pieces of P2111 'Wanderer' to 3 7/8" x 5 7/8".  Join the two pieces together with a piece of scrap card stuck to the back with temporary adhesive. 
  • Position Designer Template Feathers over the right side and add texture paste over the large peacock feather. Mask off any other feathers and then gently spritz with Kaiser Mist Peach. Remove and wash your template.
  • Gently Spritz the entire front with peach and white Kaiser Mist. While still wet, sprinkle with fine clear glitter and let dry, (overnight is best!). Spray with fixitive spray to fix the glitter.
  • Gently remove the temporary backing and edge each piece in black ink, (I used a black calligraphy pen). Adhere to card front.
  • Create flower, leaf and feather cluster and adhere clear delicate words sticker.
  • Finish with a few Champagne Rhinestones.

Other Products Used: Feather | Texture Paste 


Belly Band 

  • Cut the lace border from P2111 'Wanderer' (you will need two pages to go around the card). 
  • Gently wrap one band around the front of the card, join the second piece at the back with double sided tape. Cut off the excess leaving a 3/4" overlap. Adhere paper Velcro dots to the end.
  • Stamp and colour girl from clear stamps (CS2666). I  used Copic markers; Skin: E000; E00; RV10. Hair: E11; E15; E19. Bow: E07 and 0 for dots. Lips E07. Eyes: YG17. White gel pen highlights

  • Adhere girl to Belly Band with 2mm foam dots, slipping 'Dare to Dream Banner under.
  • Arrange and adhere feather, leaf and flower cluster to left of girl.
  • Finish with three rhinestones on the banner.

CS266 Clear Stamp.

Other Products Used: Copic Markers | Blending Card | Feather | Paper Velcro Dots | White Gel Pen.



  •  Using papers and collectables from Boho Dreams collection and Rustic Cardstock, cover each section, outlining pieces in black before adhering to card.
  • You will notice I have altered the striped paper. I felt it was too big for the card so I drew in additional fragmented black lines with a black marker and ruler!
  • I have used Kaisercrafts orange glitter pen to colour the feathers that I fussy cut. 
  • I used a combination of 1mm and 2mm foam dots to pop the feathers. Some feathers were from the sticker sheet. With these I used talcum powder on the back (removes the stickiness) so that I could use foam dots on them and keep them raised.

  • The bike and girl are both mounted on 1mm foam dots for added dimension.
  • I used Peach Kaiser Mist on the lovely wooden heart, also from Kasiercraft.

The Back 

  • Cover with papers from the Boho Dreams Collection, edging as you go before adhering to the back.
  • Adhere word strip and finish with your hand made stamp, after all this work, you want people to know YOU made it!
